I was watching a movie today and there was terminally ill woman laying in her bed and this guy tells her it's ok to go, that everyone will be alright and then a few minutes later, she is dead. I was thinking that if I were terminally ill and someone said that to me i think i would gather enough energy to get up and just slap the person right in the face. I am sorry, but i wouldnt want to just let go and die. I want to stay alive as long as possible. I know if someone said that to me, it would be with good intentions but I feel saying that would make me die quicker. Call me superstitious but that I how I feel. So, what is everyones opinion on this subject?

Maybe he knows how the terminally ill suffered...and if you really love someone, its hard to say those words esp to the dying one who is very dear to you. But maybe they can no longer stand the sight of their loved one suffering. I once read a story just like that, the girl really loves her mother and each day she could see how her mother suffer more and more because of her illness. But she knows that her mother was very much afraid to leave her alone. So she said that word to let go of her mother... she knows until the last breath of her mother she was thinking oh her.

Very beautiful story. I know it was said with good intentions, to say "Hey, don't worry, I can take care of myself, it is ok to let go and pass on".
